Dr. Stauffer

Special awards and acknowledgments:  Member of the American Dental Association and American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry

 Where did you grow up? Mesa, Arizona

What/who inspired you to be a dentist? Growing up, I learned how to work in the home-building industry. I love working with my hands and being able to see the progress at the end of the day. At the same time, I found that working with and serving people made me happy. Dentistry allows me to do both and I love it!

What did you want to be when you were a child? A professional BMXer. I loved being outside on my bike. My friends and I would find a vacant dirt field and construct dirt jumps to test our BMXing abilities.

What are you most proud of? My family. My wife Brittany and I have a boy, Hudson and two little girls, Eva and Elsie. They are my everything.

What do you love to do when not practicing dentistry? I love spending time with my family and being outdoors. Our favorite place is the beach. With our young toddler-aged kids, we can usually be found at a splash pad or at an airport watching airplanes take off and land. I also love playing basketball.

What is your favorite food? Smoked brisket.

What is one piece of advice you would give your younger self? You become who you choose to spend your time with.

Sheri- Practice Manager:

I am originally from Southern California, but spent most of my life in the beautiful, yet rainy, state of Oregon. After my husband of 30 years and I raised our two sons we headed to AZ to dry out and live a life in the sun. We love it here!!

I entered the dental field in 2002, when I decided to go back to work after being home with my children for many years. I had no idea how much I would love it. I have worked in general dentistry as well as orthodontics. I have always been on the administrative side and working with patients as well as our team is what makes me happy. You will find me in the day to day operations and leading others to be their best.

In my free time I love to spend time with my family, especially my Granddaughter. Some of my favorite things are organizing, reading, travel, personal development and coffee.

Stephanie- Dental Hygienist:

 

I was born and raised in Southern Idaho, where I graduated from Idaho State University with a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene. I have a true passion to educate my patients on their oral health and remember personal details that patients share with me. I work hard to make every patients’ visit enjoyable and comfortable. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband Zane and my dog Latte. We love to spend time with family and enjoy adventures in the great outdoors such as camping, softball, and traveling to new places. I feel fortunate to be a part of the Whiting Dental team where I have built awesome friendships with my team and my patients.

 

Anna- Dental Assistant

I'm from Northern California but have been in Arizona for over 20 years. I've lived in the East Valley and have grown to love living in this state. I began my dental assisting career in 2012 and enjoy working with and building genuine relationships with my patients. In my free time, I love to be with my daughter, ride motorcycles, hit the gym, and learn more about improving the quality of life.

Laura- Financial/Treatment Coordinator

I am originally from New York, grew up in Tucson, and have been in dentistry for 33 years. I graduated from dental assisting school in 1986. I assisted for 15 years until I moved to the front desk, where I love to help patients with their dental plans, accounts, treatment needs, and scheduling. I am married with a 25 year-old stepson, who is in the Air National Guard. I love shopping and vacationing.

Rae- Dental Hygienist

I have been in dentistry since 1979 and am indeed dedicated to the field.
A native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, I moved to the Valley of the Sun in 1987.
I completed my Dental Hygiene education in 1995 in Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
I enjoy continuing education and learning about the latest innovations in dentistry. In my spare time, I like to travel to Cape Cod and Vegas, and spend time with my family and three dogs.

Lia- Dental Assistant

I grew up in Wichita, Kansas and joined the Air Force for four years as a fuel systems mechanic on F-15 jets. I went to a dental assisting school in Columbus, Ohio and I have been in dentistry for 27 years. I moved to Arizona in 2013 and started working with the Whiting Dental team in 2016, where I plan on retiring. I was blessed with a daughter who just gave me my first grandchild, Amilia Grace in April, 2019. I enjoy hiking, gardening, working on my new home and reading.

Danielle- Patient Coordinator

I am a native to Arizona and have been in the dental field for over 20 years. I graduated from the dental assisting program at Pima Medical Institute. My main job is the front office coordinator but you may find me in the back working as a dental assistant when needed. I value each patient that walks through the door and love to make sure everyone is having a good day. I will always try to put a smile on your face.

I have been married to my wonderful husband since 2005 and we have two

wonderful boys who are the light of our lives. When I am not serving my patients at Whiting Dental, I enjoy camping, four-wheeling and swimmingg.

 

Gina- Dental Hygienist

I was born and raised in Illinois and moved to Arizona with my parents and five siblings in 1980. While attending college, I met the love of my life, Mark. We married in 1986 and had three children. While I enjoyed being a stay at home mom for many years, I decided to go back to school to pursue my dream of becoming a dental hygienist.

I took a position as a hygiene assistant for a pediatric dental practice and worked for three years until I was accepted to MCC’s hygiene program. After earning my RDH license in 2007, I accepted a position at Whiting Dental, and I have worked on their team for the past twelve years. I continue to provide quality, compassionate care to my patients and treat them like family! It gives me great pleasure to educate them on their oral health as I want them to be healthy. When I am not at work, I enjoy my grandchildren and spending time with my family!
